Ending of employment

When an employee ends their employment, please follow the checklist stated on this page. On these pages you will also be able to find documents and information that are important when an employment ends.

An employment at EECS can end when the agreed-upon time-limited contract ends. An employment can also end if the employee chooses to end it by requesting to terminate their employment. If a time-limited employment is about to end, you as an employee will recieve a notice from the school if your employment has lasted for more than a year. 

If you as an employee chooses to terminate your employment, you need to send in a request of termination. You will find the document on KTH's central web pages

The document must then be sent to your HR contact  at EECS who will register your request with KTH's salary division.
